Roma host league leaders leaders Juventus in a clash between two giants of Serie A.

Struggling Roma host Serie A leaders Juventus on Saturday evening looking to improve on their current ninth-place standing.

Roma have lost four of their last six and are without a league win since beating AC Milan before Christmas.

Juventus have opened up a five-point lead over Napoli thanks to a recent run of 11 points from 15 games, most recently 2-0 against Fiorentina last weekend.

Roma coach Aurelio Andreazzoli has a slight doubt over the fitness of both Marquinhos and Daniele de Rossi, but both are expected to start, although Pablo Osvaldo could miss out.

Juventus have Claudio Marchisio and Federico Peluso suspended, while Paolo de Ceglie is a doubt with injury.
